posts vary. Many gaming-related posts are shared privately and low in
volume. I find myself posting comments and plus 1'ing more than
anything. I try to refrain from posting volatile topics like politics,
religion, or other subjects that may result in senseless flame wars. I
don't have a problem with your views and may comment on those in a
rational manner. I don't troll, I don't poo poo everything, and I
appreciate engagement. Many people may only add me because I'm a gamer only to uncircle me because not all my posts are gaming related. Me? I know people are multifaceted, gaming, tech, etc, may be the initial commonality.
If I don't reciprocate the
circle it's usually because you don't have any posts I can view to
determine your interest(s); or, your profile lacks information.
If you take life too seriously, that's fine; however, you're better off not circling me. I don't have time for the drama. :-)Personal
I'm a proud pen, paper, & dice role-playing gamer. While my group defaults to Pathfinder, I'm the one that explores other titles & systems - Savage Worlds, d20, d100Lite, Star Wars, Dungeon Crawl Classics, D&D, Dungeonworld, Basic RP System, GURPS, and more. Right now I'm a player in a Shadowrun 5th ed. & homebrew Pathfinder game. We alternate weeks.

I appreciate open source technologies. I run Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon on my desktop, though I'm open-minded enough to not be a blind fanatic. I'm currently teaching myself Ruby.
I enjoy listening to podcasts & audio books. Otherwise you can find me at the keyboard of my computer surfing the web or doing 'computer' stuff like trying to learn Ruby/Rails. :-)
I'm married to a beautiful and intelligent woman of Russian descent, and own 3 cats. /sneeze
My work history has been quite diverse. Aside from being an Army veteran, I've worked in customer service for 4 years,then went into technical staffing - recruiting, sourcing and placement of information technology professionals. As the economy took a downturn, I pursued an opportunity in e-maketing and the web industry where I consulted with clients, managed web projects between customers and a 5 person dev team, and trained sales staff, etc. I was then solicited for a corporate recruiter position (HR person) to source and recruit IT pros for a $4B financial services company.With years of IT knowledge, I made the move to corporate security and safety (IT) where I handle IT risk & security awareness. So yeah, I'm all over the place but thankful to have such different opportunities.
